I love grab and go items for breakfast. These nutty pumpkin muffins are great for a mid morning snack too.

Delicious with a steaming cup of coffee or hot tea, they will get your day off to the right start. They are full of pumpkin goodness perfect for the season. Surprise friends, neighbors or co-workers with a batch of Nutty Pumpkin Muffins. I love baking muffins without paper wrappers and these don’t need them. They release easily from the muffin pan.

Surprise your family with a batch of nutty pumpkin muffins.

Save a few of the pecans (or walnuts if you choose to substitute) and sprinkle them on top. I’ve made the recipe a couple of times now and shared them with neighbors. They all raved about the muffins. Whip up a batch this pumpkin season and watch them disappear. I would say they are a keeper. Plus your house will smell so good getting you in the mood for the upcoming holidays.

Nutty Pumpkin Muffins are a great grab and go breakfast.
